Overview

In this first volume of his two-volume autobiography, Wiesel takes us from his childhood memories of a traditional and loving Jewish family in the Romanian village of Sighet through the horrors of Auschwitz and Buchenwald and the years of spiritual struggle, to his emergence as a witness for the Holocaust's martyrs and survivors and for the State of Israel, and as a spokesman for humanity.

Elie Weisel is a spokesman for man's humanity to man, and a spokesman for the Jewish people and their modern history. This story of part of his life is as all his writing profound and insightful. This work is recommended highly for all those who wish to know modern Jewish history, and who too would know and understand a great voice for human goodness.

Like most of Elie Wiesel's writings this is also a must read. He reminds us of one of the most brutal times in the world's history. These are things that we must never forget..

She sits at the edge of the stream watching the fish swim by. Suddenly she plunged into the water and went under. Two minutes later she came up with a medium sized trout in her jaw. She pinned it to the ground and gave it a swift bite to the neck. The fish twitched once then went limp. She proudly picked up her prize and trotted back to camp. -Lav &#9829
